If you care about health and safety, AVOID. We were forced to abandon our pre-booked guided tour after 10 minutes due to unsafe overcrowding and lack of safety measures. The docent (who refused to properly wear her mask) started the tour by herding all 20 participants into a tiny room to discuss Yemenite instruments. The subject was probably fascinating -- too bad I couldn't see/hear any of it: Our family filed out rather than be unsafely crammed into such tight quarters, but then we couldn't hear or see. The next room was more of the same -- many maskless or partially maskless people crammed into a tiny area. When I asked our guide why they didn't operate according to govt health standards, she shrugged and said, "um, yeah, it's difficult." When we complained at the front desk, the clerk (mask hovering somewhere near his upper lip) offered us a self-guided Tablet tour instead, but it really wasn't very engaging. Also, they let in too many visitors, it was impossible to properly keep distance from others as is required by law. Disappointing waste of money and time. Note: I have been to several museums throughout Israel during the current Covid pandemic, and all the others put in the effort and operated according to govt regulations -- temperature checks upon arrival, alcogel available throughout, and (most importantly) they kept the number of people low enough to ensure safe distancing, and had security guards remind people to wear masks properly if they weren't doing so. This museum did none of those things. I guess they couldn't be bothered; nobody seemed to care.

Rare fun for eyes and ears!

Fun for the eyes and ears! This innovative museum design gives us access to unique and rare cultural instruments. The self-guided tour with iPads and earphones in English gave an really interesting and easy-to-use introduction to the instruments. Staff helpers Ethan and Ayala were warm and welcoming, helping people of every age have a hands on experience with actual instruments. These unique musical artifacts matched with gorgeously themed rooms designed to reflect each culture while a virtual tour gave a history on music in the ancient temple. I spent six hours in just six rooms and loved every minute. Ask Ayala the story behind the accordion!
